Fleurs des Indes
Fleurs des Indes is a style of floral decoration of Japanese origin, adopted in Europe in the early 18th century. The Herend d'cor of this name shows a section of reed fencing that resembles a basket. From it rises an arching wreath of branches, twigs and stems, studded with floating stylized flowers and daintily bending leaves. Around is a delicate garland of leaves punctuated by gold rosettes. Smaller stylized flowers are scattered around the edges of the pattern, which is closed by a band striped with gold. One great admirer of this pattern was Empress Eugenie, consort of Napoleon III of France, who during the 1867 World Exposition in Paris, served a dinner on it, in honour of Emperor-King Francis Joseph of Austria-Hungary.
